History of Jokes

One could include in this impossibly difficult social history a list of the different versions of Polish jokes. I know in Canada they tell “Newfie” jokes. All sorts of US states tell them about denizens of their border states. Indians tell them about Sikhs — or so I’ve been told. And people at NR tell them about the gang at the Weekly Standard (I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Bill, boob-a-la, I kid because I love).
